Pain in the pelvis can affect women of any age and may be associated with periods, intimate pain which causes relationship problems and bladder or bowel pain. The first stage in dealing with this problem is finding out more about the pain symptoms and some background information such as previous pregnancies, operations and medical problems.
We will often recommend a pelvic examination and ultrasound scan. Some pelvic pain is caused by problems in the pelvis such as endometriosis, cysts or fibroids. Pain can however be complex and often a holistic approach is required to improve the woman’s quality of life. This may require physiotherapy, medical treatments or surgery.
